Round-up: Today’s top stories in the morning papers in Korea (April 26, 2017)
1. The recent opinion poll on frontrunners of the presidential election shows a widening gap between Moon Jae-in, the left-leaning Democratic Party of Korea, and Ahn Cheol-soo, the center-left People’s Party of Korea. With Ahn’s approval rating going down, the two-way race between Moon and Ahn is on the verge of collapse and voters who supported Ahn move to support Hong Joon-pyo and Yoo Seung-min.
Ahn Cheol-soo no longer has evil forces that support him but Korean voters.
